I would recommend getting a new one from a dealer. If it just the dipstick itself, it shouldn't be more than 20 dollars.

If it is only removing and replacing a dipstick, you can do it yourself in under a minute. You do mean the plastic top at the end of the dipstick, correct?

Not a problem. I'll be glad to help you through it. Are you able to see the steel part of the dipstick? Can you upload a pic for me to see what we are dealing with?
